Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic is prepared to make changes for Sunday's World Cup final against France if some of his players have not recovered from their exertions in reaching football's biggest game.

The 2-1 extra-time victory puts the country in their first World Cup final, less than 30 years since they started competing as an independent nation.

"We are in the World Cup final. This is something all of us have in us, and it will be in us to the very last moment".

As a fan I was devastated to have come so close to a World Cup final and taking photos of England players falling to the floor so upset at the final whistle was tough, but that's the job. He told us there were still good players despite this crisis. They won 2-0 to reach the play-offs, before beating Greece make it to Russian Federation. In Southgate, a former U-21 boss, they have somebody willing to bring young talent into his set-up.

He said: "It's a special feeling to know that the people back home and out here in Russian Federation are enjoying the experience just as much as we are". We tried to get some kip but it was too bumpy and the last 50km the shaking had broken the mechanism on the driver's side window so we had the window open as well - it was all a bit mad but only cost us the equivalent of £200 in total. "Hopefully there will be four million people out on the streets celebrating".

"But I would accept it is very hard when you had the ambition of getting to the final".

"I would definitely leave my football boots behind on Monday if that was the price I had to pay to win for my country, to win for Croatia", said Rakitic, according to Telegraph Sport. After Croatia's opening win against Nigeria, he sent striker Nikola Kalinic home for refusing to come on as a substitute.

Adding to the dramas, the team fired an assistant manager for an anti-Russia post on social media just before semifinal.

"Modric has had a brilliant season with Real Madrid and here, he's still sprinting about the pitch in the 115th minute", said the coach. Argentina's deep-rooted problems are likely to hold them back for years to come and Spain, for all their brilliant players and youth development, have had two awful World Cups since they won it eight years ago. "There are no secrets, there are no dilemmas".

"I've seen lots of ex-players and had lots of messages from ex-players as well who have the same view, so we're really pleased with his contribution, and his work-rate as well without the ball has been incredible for us". "There is no time for discussions or quarrels".
